Two defendants have received separate 30-month prison sentences through Huron County Common Pleas Court.

Adam W. Copsey, 33, formerly of 25 Gallup Ave., was sentenced to 30 months in prison May 16 for one count each of complicity to trafficking in drugs and permitting drug abuse. His convictions were for a Jan. 28 incident.

Copsey also was fined $5,000 and must pay a $40 reimbursement to the Norwalk Police Department for lab testing.

In another case, Anthony D. Gillespie, 30, formerly of Bellevue, was sentenced to 30 months in prison May 16 for one count each of domestic violence, theft and robbery.

And in a third case, Brittany M. Parsons, 32, whose address was unavailable, was sentenced May 15 to a 60-day prison sentence for an undisclosed probation violation. Her underlying conviction was theft.

Parsons’ sentence will be served consecutively to her current incarceration for an Erie County case.
